Frus­trated and Ex­hausted

Southasia - - EDITOR'S MAIL -

God only knows how long it will take for a true democ­racy to come to Pak­istan. The grad­ual change brought about by the dhar­nas in terms of peo­ple chal­leng­ing the sta­tus quo not­with­stand­ing, the ex­cite­ment and allure that once ex­isted has some­what faded. Though most peo­ple do have a pos­i­tive out­look re­gard­ing the res­o­lu­tion of the dead­lock be­tween the protest­ing par­ties and the gov­ern­ment, many are quite per­turbed by the ‘po­lit­i­cal calamity’ as so ar­tic­u­lately put by the writer of the piece ‘The Road to Nowhere’.

Pak­istan has be­come so em­broiled in its prob­lems that it runs the risk of isolating it­self from the rest of the world. For­eign in­vest­ment is de­creas­ing while peo­ple are mov­ing out of Pak­istan in search of greener pas­tures else­where. In ad­di­tion, since po­lit­i­cal in­sta­bil­ity has be­come the core fo­cus of the me­dia nowa­days, other achieve­ments in sports and other ar­eas are com­pletely ig­nored. One can only hope for some nor­malcy amidst all this chaos. Shireen Jamshed La­hore, Pak­istan
